Help me to have life saving spinal surgery

Hi my Name is Beth and I need your Help. I have always helped others and still do as much as I can. When my parents were alive I was there taking care of them till the day they died. I always help others. I Need you help! My spine is getting worse. I have a spinal infection which is draining. The two openings in my lumbar spine must be packed daily. My back has been draining for 2 years. I can’t afford to have the spinal surgery that I need so badly! I have hardware in my back from T-9 through my tail bone. I have 4 broken rods in the lumbar area. I also have new cracks in lumbar spine. The doctors have to take out the hardware keep it out 3-4 months. To try to get rid of the infection. I need 8weeks if not more of IV antibiotics. They don’t know if I’ll be able to walk again. I’ll have to go through several surgeries within the 3-4 months to flush out the infection. Then I need surgery to straighten me out and put back the hardware. I pray to G-D that the infection will be cleared up. I have gone through about 20 spine surgeries since 1997 to 2014. The infection just started up again couple of years ago. I can’t afford everything that I need to go through the spinal surgery. I am in pain 24/7. I can’t stand the pain back feels as if I have bone rubbing on bone. I have severe pain in my lumbar spine , hip , down my legs. One leg I have lost feelings in half the leg and foot. The other part of my leg and the other leg I have severe pain . My right hip bone is protruding out. The pain is so bad and getting worse! The doctors don’t know how I am walking. I walk with a cane and walker. I say to them I can’t let this get the best of me and most of all G-D is watching over me. Please I’m asking you to help me live. Please I ask you to help me so I can live .
